Hi, Im Vince. I am a psychotherapist/counsellor and supervisor of therapists. I am passionate about helping people to feel free of their problems, grow in confidence and live life to the full. I work on developing a therapeutic relationship with you where you can feel safe to explore difficult and painful issues in a confidential setting; issues that you may not have been able to disclose to anyone before.
How it works
In counselling, you set the agenda for the sessions. It is your time to talk about issues that concern you whilst I listen, empathise and check my understanding with you. Counselling is not telling you what to do. It is a journey of joint exploration of the issues; a dynamic therapeutic relationship that gives space for you to express yourself without fear of judgement whilst you develop insights that can alleviate your painful feelings.
Do give me a call or text on 07840-855030 or email me on email@example.com so that we can discuss your particular needs.
The First Session
In the first session you will have an opportunity to explain what has brought you to counselling and to see how counselling might work for you. If you decide to continue then we can arrange for a number of further sessions according to your needs. You are free to terminate counselling at any time. (This first session is chargeable at the normal fee rate).
Counselling is always confidential. The nature of this confidentiality will be explained to you in detail during the introductory session.
Training, qualifications & experience
Qualifications and Professional membership
I hold an MA in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Leicester and have been in private practice since 2009.
I am an accredited member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and registered as an Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist with UKRCP (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors/Psychotherapists).
I hold a Certificate in Supervision from 'Cambridge Supervision Training'; a training organisation accredited with the Adlerian Society of the UK, (The Adlerian Society and Institute for Individual Psychology).
I have worked with individuals, couples and young people (under 16) of different cultures, backgrounds and sexualities with a diversity of issues and needs and have experience in the voluntary sector, NHS E.A.P., in Schools/Academies and privately.
I also have many years of experience in pastoral settings working with the bereaved, with married couples and with those suffering from mental ill-health.
I am experienced in both open ended and time limited psychotherapeutic work, can offer solution based therapies where required and will tailor the approach to suit you. Working with the whole person in mind, I will think about your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs; helping you to discover areas that you wish to change.
I have experience supervising counselling trainees at Masters level in a University setting as well as with qualified practitioners. In both contexts I bring much energy and creativity to the supervisory relationship for the benefit of the supervisee and the client alike.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
